Neave is a proud queer Filipino illustrator and background artist based in Los Angeles, California. They are currently attending California State University Northridge (Bachelor of Arts- 2D Animation 2022), specializing in background design and visual development using procreate and photoshop.

Heavily inspired by animated films such as "The Cat Returns" (2002), "Blue Exorcist: The Movie" (2013), "Spider Man: Into the Spiderverse" (2018), and Netflix's animation anthology "Love Death+ Robots" (2019), Neave aspires to collaborate with creative teams to develop both timeless and fantastical works. A lifelong dream of theirs is to contribute their skills in visual development for animated feature films with a focus on the LGBTQ+ and BIPOC communities.

On their spare time, they like to play with their stinky chihuahua, attend anime conventions, and drink lots of boba

In loving memory of William "Bill" Asuro (1955-2020)

To dad, my very first art teacher: one day, I'll make a background character based off of you. Love you always.
